    Truths Most Doctors Won't Know

    As a practicing internist (primary care physician) I found Ravnskov's book extremely informative about an issue of the utmost importance to health concerns worldwide. The author has provided convincing documentation of scientific support for his views. I only wish it could become standard reading for physicians and their patients, since it presents us with a foreboding forecast of major health problems arising essentially from the greedy, and I believe immoral, behavior of the pharmaceutical industry. That same accusation applies to some of our most prominent and highly regarded professors in medical schools here and abroad, as well as some of our most respected medical journals. I can only hope this book challenges "the establishment" well enough to save some lives, and lead to a more enlightened public and medical domain.

    My only criticism is that Ravnskov's grammar and syntax are not quite perfect. However, he is certainly "easy to read", and should be easily understood by any reader.
